I'm sorry, Lantana. I'm glad you were able to have some time together though.

Morning all. I'm off to my daughter's.


Huge storms in the night, haven't had rain like that since June.

Thank you everyone, what a lovely lot you are. He was such a special dog to me, he knew I was his human.

Thank you.


I was going to see my daughter this evening but will go tomorrow morning instead. Don't really feel up to the drive. We've just come back from taking him to the vets. My favourite vet came this afternoon to put him to sleep but he had to go on to a sick horse. Tigger will be cremated and we will have the ashes. I have his collar and a lock of fur.

Morning all. Tigger dog was weak yesterday and hardly ate anything, slept most of the day. Nearly 14. Vet coming to assess him this afternoon.

We are going to yet another funeral today, a sweet old lady who used to go to our church. I expect her husband will have to go into a home now. She was his carer. He refused to go back to England as their sons wanted.


Oh dear what a gloomy post!

Too much or too little water perhaps? But I was thinking autumn too.

Sending you my best wishes, Kitty, but good to hear that it seems as though your aunt is on the mend. She's lucky to have such a caring niece nearby.

Glad you liked my idea, works well for me.


I love roses, mine aren't diseased or unshapely and they have lots of flowers.


How could you dislike my lovely climbing The Pilgrim?

A Problem With Herbs

Have they dried out? Chives and Parsley need regular watering, but Thyme prefers to be drier. When you say they could be dead do you mean the foliage has died down? In that case they probably are dead. Chives and Parsely will die down with frost, Parsley will come up in Spring and go to seed, it's a biennial. Chives are perennial and should come back every year, but will need re-potting and feeding.


When you cut them for use did you cut every single leaf? Maybe it was too much of a shock. Maybe they weren't hardened off properly.
